WHO YOU ARE SUPPORTING
Artisan Group: Traditional Arts and Ethnology Centre
Ethnic minority communities living in rural areas make up the poorest sector of the Lao population. Recognising the unique obligations of a museum working with these communities, the Traditional Arts & Ethnology Centre (TAEC) runs an innovative livelihoods development program based on traditional handicraft skills. The overwhelming majority of handicraft producers in the program are ethnic minority women, who studies have shown spend their income on their family’s food, health and education needs. TAEC is certified by Fair Trade Laos.
